Acer South Africa has announced the local availability of the Acer P5260i, a new professional DLP video-projector designed to offer cable-free projection in a range of environments.

The projector offers native XGA (1024 x 768) resolution, 2700 ANSI Lumens brightness and a 2000:1 contrast ratio, ensuring a clear and crisp picture even from a long distance. The Acer P5260i supports 1080p high definition video projection, allowing users to view videos even on large screens.
Says John Geypen, business development manager at Acer South Africa: "The Acer P5260i offers convenient cable-free projecting, superb ergonomics, ease of use, and great performance at an affordable price. It is an ideal solution for collaborative work environments and multimedia content."
The P5260i features 802.11b/g wireless connectivity with Wireless Encryption Protocol (WEP) for security, allowing for secure cable-free projection in almost any environment. A Plug & Show token standard with the projector provides installation-free wireless projection and easy compatibility for visitors' notebooks. The Acer P5260i can also connect to the Internet or corporate intranet to retrieve interactive content.
The projector features a comprehensive range of source inputs, including D-Sub, DVI-D and/or HDMI. A wide range of standard and high definition video projection formats is supported including MPEG1, MPEG2, MPEG4, WMV9, AVI, DivX 3.11 to 5x, XviD, ASF, and VOB (without encryption).
The Acer Quad-View technology divides the projection screen into four sections, so that multiple users can easily connect to the wireless projector and simultaneously display content from different PCs. The P5260i offers up to 4000 hours of lamp life in eco mode. Replacing the lamp is a snap; thanks to the Acer Top-Loading Lamp design that means the lamp module can easily be swapped for a new one even if the projector is ceiling-mounted.
Like all Acer projectors, this model is equipped with Acer ColorBoost Technology, Acer's innovative proprietary colour enhancement technology for DLP projectors. ColorBoost provides optimised colour performance that delivers vivid and life-like pastel images.
To improve ease-of-use, Acer has also equipped its projector range with Empowering Technology, a software suite designed to make the use of any Acer projector easy and trouble-free. Just one press of the Empowering Technology button gives one instant access to simple setup, viewing and timer utilities.
The P5260i video-projector sports elegant design with a soft texture and smooth rounded curves. It features a handy remote control that includes the Empowering Key, for faster access to Acer Empowering Technology tools, and laser pointer, mouse and page up/down functionalities.
The Acer InstantPack technology allows the user to unplug and pack the projector as soon as it is turned off without waiting for cooling period. A low 25 dBA noise level and a built-in speaker enhance presentations and video entertainment audibility.
The Acer P5260i is available from a recommended retail price of R13 999.00 including VAT.
